't hurt anybody inside. in benghazi, the more we learn about it, the less like that it seemed. it was a commando-style raid in benghazi where militants may have been angry about this same video, but they clearly moved in with a military-style tactic. they had rpgs. the attack on the consulate was carried thought two waves. that's the kind of thing in benghazi that is carried out by a militant group, by a terrorist group, by al qaeda potentially. and u.s. officials are looking into that right now. also wondering was it just a coincidence that the u.s. ambassador, who is normally based in tripoli, happened to be in benghazi at the very time of the attack. so a lot of questions. but it's clear now that these were two very different incidents. a spontaneous uprising that resulted in no casualties here in cairo, and a guerrilla assault in benghazi that killed the u.s. ambassador. richard engel, nbc news, cairo. >> the story is obviously global, but the emotion is very local. ambassador stevens went to piedmont high school and then to uc berkeley. tonight his friends and family are

.s. consulate in been gaza that killed -- benghazi that killed four american citizens. the two confirmed thus far among the dead are slawn smith, an air force veteran turned information management officer and ambassador chris stevens, one of america's finest and bravest foreign service officers. i didn't know sean smith, i know he's a great american who served his country, but i had gotten to know chris stevens quite well. and ambassador chris stevens' death, the libyan people have lost a champion and believer in the peaceful aspirations of their democratic revolution. the american people have lost a selfless and dedicated servant of our interests and our values, and i have lost a friend. my thoughts and prayers today are with chris' family and the loved ones of his fallen colleagues. my god grant them comfort in their time of grief. our most urge vent -- urgent order of business is now is to ensure our citizens in libya and egypt and elsewhere across the world are safe. americans look to the government in libya and egypt and elsewhere to meet their responsibilities in this regard. we also lo
.s. consulate in benghazi was a preplanned coordinated attack carried out by islamist radical groups, militants operating in the eastern part of the country, the big question is what will the libyan government do next. we heard strong words of condemnation coming out here. the president of the libyan parliament yesterday saying they will not let people stage attacks against western targets. but the big question is will they actually do anything beyond these words. we have seen attacks in recent months targeting western interests in and around the city of benghazi, but little was done to bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice, although the government now is vowing that they will bring those responsible for tuesday's attack to justice. but the government does know who these groups are, they're aware of their presence in and around the city of benghazi. these are groups that are linked to al qaeda. these are extremist militant groups that are known to have bases around in the eastern part of the country. there will be no doubt a lot of pressure from the united states on libyan authorit
from who were responsible for the attacks in benghazi. this basically gives the president options, if you will. we talked about it a minute ago. drones are flying over eastern libya, collecting intelligence, surv surveying on the ground. if they feel they have a credible target they can go after, they can take that to the attacks in benghazi. this will give the president an option he could u use. he could use missiles on armed drones. they could get an indication that the libyans are going after the targets. this puts the polices into place. u.s. navy warships, tomahawk missiles send a particular message, even if those warships don't fire and stay on patrol. >> just to recap here, in sanaa, it is the yemeni police who are taking action and trying to stop the protest in a peaceful manner? >> right. the yemenis have an interior ministry of security forces that is quite extensive. over the years one has to say that in the past, there's been a lot of question about the loyalty of those security forces, under the previous president. whether they were sheltering al qaeda in their countr
a rolein his vulnerability is that ambassador stevens was something of a hero to the people of benghazi. he was stationed there throughout the conflict. he really provided eager and important support to the rebels who were trying to oust colonel moammar qaddafi when that fight was going on. he's somebody who's seen around town not necessarily with a heavy guard eating local food at local places, hanging out with local people. he's friends with a number of sheikhs, with many of the prominent local iellectuals. i think he had reason to believ the city of benghazi really had his back, that he was very welcome there. >> rose: continuing on the subject of libya, i talked earlier today by telephone from geneva with former secretary general of the united nations kofi annan. what should we worry about when you see the kinds of demonstrations we have seen in cairo and the more lethal consequences in libya about a response to a privately produced film that has nothing to do with america or the american government. >> think that those kinds of incidents first of all shows that the it was how individua
